How To: Flat Lay Like A Blogger

If you’re obsessed with your Instagram page like I am, than you’ll know the perfect way to liven up your grid is with a fresh flat lay. Whether you’re trying to get the perfect snap of your eggs Benedict, or showing off the goodies inside your Status Anxiety handbag, you’ll know the struggle of trying to nail the flat lay. Admittedly, a flat lay is an art. They effortlessly tell a stylish story and break up your posts so your gram isn’t flooded with group shots & selfies.

Here are 4 tips to make you an established #flatlayqueen in no time:

Natural lighting is key

Without a doubt, the most important element to a good flat lay is lighting. Timing is crucial, you either have to get in early for the soft morning light, or hang around until the afternoon when the lighting is vibrant and intense. Natural light is perfect because it doesn’t cause any shadows that would cramp your flat lays style. Try getting breakfast next to a window next time you’re out– you’ll be flooded with natural light!

Leave space between objects

Less is more and the last thing you want to create with your flat lay is clutter! Leave space between the items you’re including in the photo. Aim for balance and don’t overthink it!

Square template

Getting every focal point in frame is sometimes a struggle. Stick to a square template to avoid anything being cut out. The square lay out will also help in getting a perfectly balanced snap.

Birds eye view

If you’re out in public, you’ll have to be willing to sacrifice a small part of your dignity to capture the perfect flat lay. We’ve all had those mid-brunch moments when someone presses pause on eating to take a picture of the beautiful food, but sitting at a bench can often be limiting. To get the perfect flat lay you’ll need height, so swallow your pride and get on your seat your grid will thank you for it!
